    After having various versions of davits on prior boats with varying levels of complexity, I searched for davits that were simple, had a small footprint and I could operate single handed with a 10′ RIB and 15 HP outboard. The H30 delivered all my requirements and more.
    Installed on my 460 Express in 2016, I now have 5 years experience on the Great Lakes with the H30 and it has never let me down. Thank you Hurley for engineering an elegant solution.

    Hi there!

    Wanted to send You pics after installation and purchase of the new GTI (90). This is the only davit I could use! Works fine! Thanks to You I didn’t have to settle for The Spark.

    Best Regards,
    Henrik Andresen

    You are a genius! Thanks for an incredible davits system. I bought your H3O hand crank davit system. There are so many positives I dont know where to begin. In a word, it worked! I have looked for quite some time for a davit solution that would allow me to load and unload my hard bottom dinghy with a Mercury 9.9 4 stroke all by myself. My bad back really appreciates what you have created in the H3O. Great job!

    We purchased your Opriginal davit to carry our 10 foot AB RIB with its 4hp motor. Over the few years we owned it (we’ve now given it to a friend) we realized it was not the right choice for our 45 foot Sea Ray Sundancer. Its swim platform is 18 inches off the water and the angle needed to haul it up made it increasingly difficult to get the AB up onto the swim platform.
    The solution, AND IT REALLY WORKS, is your H3O! Thank you Todd!

    I installed this on a 2003 Rinker 342FV with an AB9.5AL RIB and 9.9hp Mercury. I tried another brand of a pull on type and to say it was difficult to pull up is an underestimate. Finally purchased the H3O after talking with the people at Hurley if there was enough room to use it.

    The H3O is amazing! Effortless to load/launch, secure on the platform, dingy secure. Easy install. Had several people come look at it at a raft off party this weekend too. Definately worth the price.

    I had the H2O and it works good. But since i upgraded my dinghy to a bigger one it was a two man job to pull it up. Now I upgraded to the H3O and even my wife can deal with the dinghy. This product has change the way we used to enjoy our dinghy becase before i drop it to the water only if necesary, now I put it in the water every time we anchor and enjoy our platform more. Thanks Hurley Marine from Puerto Rico!

    This is a super cool unit. It allows me to put a jet ski on the back on my 34 ft Sea Ray Sundancer (340). Boat runs fine with it on the back. I am so happy. Bryan

    Hi Todd,

    Finally got the H3 installed. Works great with the Spark which is about 1/2 weight of other sea doo models. Just thought I’d share.

    The H30 is the best new marine product I have seen in a lifetime of boating. If you have a heavy dinghy and/or a higher swim platform this is the BEST solution. FINALLY I can launch and retrieve my Zodiac easily and quickly by myself. Without the H30 I had to recruit others to help me pull it up or remove the motor to lighten it. Now with the H30 I am now seriously considering adding a SeaDoo Spark as a new “toy” for our boating fun because I know I can easily haul and retrieve it. Before this H30 I was actually considering a hydraulic swim platform or a crane as an option.
    Happy Boating Everyone!

    I have used the H30 on my Sealine SC35 this summer too lift a 330 Rib, it works perfect. Experienced sailors have been impressed how easy it works.

    Thank you!

    I finally had a chance to try out my H3O this past weekend and it worked great for my Sea-Doo Spark.
